I hope everyone remembers Hillary Clinton’s passionate defense of Israel’s war crimes and total silence on Ferguson when she’s running for president in two years.

today at work i asked a customer if he wanted french vanilla creamer with his coffee and he said no because he wanted the “heterosexual” creamer instead and it just blows my mind that straight people say shit about how queer people “force our sexuality on them” because i have never met a single queer person who has done something like assign a sexuality to coffee creamer

Tear Gas Is an Abortifacient. Why Won’t the Anti-Abortion Movement Oppose It?

dankotaxvx:

mangoestho:

A couple of years ago, when I was newly pregnant and reporting in the West Bank, some of my local colleagues insisted that I skip covering a protest at an Israeli checkpoint. At first, I was resistant to letting pregnancy stand in the way of my work, but they knew from experience that there might be tear gas, and tear gas, they said, causes miscarriages.

They were right: though rigorous studies are few, there is evidence that tear gas is an abortifacient. In 2011, Chile temporarily suspended its use after a University of Chile studylinked it to miscarriage and fetal harm. Investigating the use of tear gas in Bahrain in 2012, Physicians for Human Rights found that local doctors were reporting increased numbers of miscarriages in exposed areas. And UN officials have connected tear gas to miscarriages in the Palestinian territories.

This means it’s likely that police in Ferguson, Missouri, have been spraying abortion-causing chemicals on crowds of civilians. Recently at TheNation.com, Dani McClain wrote about the killing of black youth as a reproductive justice issue, one that goes to the heart of the rights of parents to raise their children in peace, safety and dignity. She’s correct, of course, but if the anti-abortion movement were actually concerned about the well-being of the unborn, then the violence in Ferguson would be a pro-life issue as well.

probably because most pro lifers dont care about science or anything so why would they know this

I used to eat the congealed milk of a different species, which is pretty weird.

At what stage do you stop making excuses and start admitting that these are executions? Trained officers can disable an aggressive suspect with a well placed shot to the leg, let alone the torso. And yet these so called public servants are emptying clips into these boys and men….

Are you fucking kidding me? How fucking offensive is this shit?

in this weeks episode: “in the past we stormed your country, now we decided to steal your culture and traditions instead.”

Culture is meant to be spread not contained.

Why the fuck does it matter if our society is trying to bring this in for Fashion? A lot of other cultures do it too but all if a sudden it’s like, nope America does everything wrong and can’t acknowledge something else without wanting to ‘steal it’. Shut the fuck up. Let’s all just share.

"Let’s all just share"

Do you want to share? Do you really want to share? Okay. Let’s share.
How about, in addition to the turban, you share the hate crimes that have been committed against our people?
How about you share the rude looks and glares my family members and countless other South Asian individuals receive when they go to a public place wearing their traditional clothes?
How about you share the murders and atrocities that have been committed against Sikh (and Hindus, Muslims, etc.) for looking and wearing something that is different from the average white American Joe the plumber?
How about you share the pain my friend’s mother went through when her son was beat up by white high schoolers who were making fun of his turban? Would you like to share his exorbitant hospital fees?
How about  you share the humiliation they face on a daily basis?
How about you share the suffering they put up with EVERY SINGLE DAMN DAY because of ignorant, putrid, white scum like yourself?
HOW ABOUT IT?
